RECENT FORM VS. D.C. UNITED

New England and D.C. will renew their longtime rivalry on Saturday night, meeting for the second and final time in 2022 following D.C.'s 3-2 win over the Revs on April 23 at Audi Field. That snapped a string of six straight wins for the Revs in the series, although they're still unbeaten in the last 11 meetings (6-0-5) in Foxborough dating back to 2013.

D.C. are a side in transition, finding their footing under newly-appointed head coach Wayne Rooney. They currently sit at the foot of the Eastern Conference table with a record of 6-13-4 (22 pts.), though they've picked up points in two of their three games since Rooney took over on the sidelines (1-1-1). That includes a dramatic 2-1 win over Orlando City SC and a 0-0 draw with the New York Red Bulls, both at Audi Field.

The Revs (7-7-9, 30 pts.) are eight points ahead of D.C. and currently tied with three other teams for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, though they hold a game in hand on all three. The unlikely trio of Matt Polster, Wilfrid Kaptoum, and Henry Kessler were the goal scorers as the Revs snapped a six-game winless run with a 3-0 victory last weekend in Orlando, and Djordje Petrović was sharp once again as the Revs kept a third straight clean sheet for the first time since 2015.

Saturday night's showdown is one of just six remaining home games for the Revolution, and it's a massive opportunity for the hosts to climb above the playoff line heading into the final 10 games of the campaign.

Overall Record vs. D.C. United: 37-40-16

SHOW YOUR COLORS

The Revs will be sporting their sleek secondary kits, which take inspiration from the block work of American Revolution Era war forts in the New England area. This kit also pays homage to The Fort - the club's dedicated supporters' sections at Gillette Stadium - and features a fort-inspired blocked white shirt with a monochromatic Revolution logo, white shorts, and sky-blue socks.
